I'm sure I speak for The Nation in offering our heartiest congratulations and our hope that things go smoothly and safely.
This represents a notable sacrifice for Bob in many respects, not the least of which is professional -- to be away from The Ticket during one of the most critical times of the sports year, and during a time when he usually assumes extra duties with the Cowboys pre-game. By mentioning his on-air duties I don't wish to minimize the extraordinary personal undertaking -- a lifetime obligation -- that Bob and his entire family have signed on for.
The Ticket and Cumulus also deserve tremendous credit for allowing Bob this freedom. Pretty damned cool.
Bob, would there were more like you. Thanks for your and your loved ones' service to our collective humanity. I'm sure that this decision will pay immense dividends in joy.
Keep us posted.
